TRENTON, N. .7.. Jan. 21.—The
feature of last night's session of the
Senate aside from the introduction of
e. long list of bills, among them Gov
ernor Wilson's seven anti-trust bills,
was a conference of Republican mem
bers on the subject of the member
ship of Senator Fitzherbert, of Mor
ris County, and a conveying to the
Democratic majority of the desires
of the Republicans in the matter. Six
of the nine Republicans were for the
reopening of the whole subject and
the remaining of the charges upon
which the Morris Senator was tried
last year but not convicted, because
the eleven Republican Senators who
then voted guilty did not constitute
two-thirds of the Senate.
Three Republican Senators, Col
gate, Leavitt and Nichols, were for
dropping the whole subject, on the
theory that the Republicans last year
did their full duty in the matter.
Senators Pierce and Gaunt were per
sistent in forcing a move against
Senator Fitzherbert.
Finally a proposition offered hy
Senator Colgate was agreed to. It
was that Senator Fitzherbert be
called upon to make an apology. Tills
proposition was conveyed to the Mor
ris Senator through some of his Dem
ocratic colleagues. There seems to be
some difference of opinion as to the
extent of the apology desired. What
ever Is done in the matter is expected
to be done in executive session. It is
the idea of Democratic Senators that
Senator Fitzherbert will not be ex
pected to admit having done anything
In the case of the acetylene gas bills
to warrant his expulsion, but that the
Republicans will be satisfied If he ad

Branford Place Spur.
Members of the City Plan Commis
mission and Chief Engineer Morris It.
Sherrerd are at work on the plans to
extend Branford place from Halsey
street to Springfle'd avenue, which
will cost $1,000,000.
•This improvement will bo made
with the view of diverting traffic on
Market street to Branford place,
which opens on Broad street. A def
inite program will be submitted to
the Board of Works by Mr. Sherrerd
at its meeting Thursday.
When it was announced that the
city planned to extend Branford place
to Springfield avenue the cooperation
of the City Plan Commission was
asked. David Grottn, president of the
commission, announced that that
body would only be too glad to co
operate with the members of the
Board of Works.
It is estimated that the cost of ac
quiring the property to make, the
Branford place extension will be
$750,000. The work^>f completing the
improvement will bring the cost up
to $1,000,000. Several other suggr-H-‘
tlons for street extensions to re
lieve traffic conditions were submit
ted to the board, among them tic.
extension of Centra1 avenue diago
nally across Park place to the Market j
street depot of the Pennsylvania.
The objection to the latter plan
was that the street would have to
cross the Morris canal. As it is not
known what steps will be taken by
the present Legislature on the
abandonment of the canal, the plan
to extend Central avenue has not
been acted upon.
If the plans for the Branford
place extension, submitted by Chief
Engineer Sherrerd, meet the approval
of the Board of Works, the Common
Council will be asked to issue $1,000,
000 in temporary loan bonds. The
city will then acquire the property
necessary l’or the improvements

The building of a crosstown trolley
line designed to take traffic away
from the Four Corners and at the
same time do away with great in
convenience now suffered by resi
dents of the Ironbound district will
shortly be suggested t* the Board of
Works by a committee from the iron
bound Improvement Association, a
The number of persons living in the
Ironbound section and working in the
West Hudson towns and those living
in West Hudson and working here
runs into the thousands. To get to
their work these persons must take
a car to the Four Corners, then trans
fer to another car. This, the improv
ers say, adds half an hour to the time
that the journey would take if there
were a direct line to Harrison.
The improvers would have the Pub
lic Service extend a line over the
Jackson street bridge from Fourth
street, Harrison, to Market street,
then one block east to Van Bureu,
and across Van Buren street to con
nect with the Kinney line. This would
make the Plank road. South Orange
avenue and Kinney lines, now taking
cate of traffic in the "down neck”
section, connect with the new line.
The proposed new line might also be
used to travel to the northern end of
the city. The trip would be over
Jackson street and Fourth street to
Harrison avenue, to Broad and Bridge
streets, where the passengers might
transfer to any Broad street ear.

Washington. Jan. a.—'When the

formidable program of business pre

Two of the principal ends the conven

President Taft’s administration to
day a\ the first session of the con

upon it had been in nearly all cases
entirely without warrant or based
upon facts. Fvequent comparisons
between State governments and the
national government had been made
to the detriment of the latter, the
secretary declared, but in his mind
no comparison existed since there
had never been a more business-like
administration than the present. The
country, he said, was politically di
vided against itself, while commer
cially and industrially it was united.
“We must have one political opin

WASHINGTON, Jan. 21.T-Presi
dent-elect Wilson's inaugural ball was
officially abandoned today when the
House committee providing for the
ceremonies on March 4, struck It out
of the congressional resolution which
covers the program.
Suggests “Commercial Zones”
for Control of All
< t
WASHINGTON., Jan. I'l.—Form*#
Representative Charles N. Fowler, of
New Jersey, outlined to the House
currency reform committee today hie
suggestions for revision of the mone
tary system. He proposed that all
national banks be authorized to flo
commercial savings and trust com
pany business and make no issues as
Canadian banks do; that all "holding ,
companies” of banks be prohibited
and that all banks be compelled to
carry the same amount of reserve
always in gold. All banks should be
under federal control, be contended
as banking was interstate business
and that clearing houses should be »
established at all financial centres to
be designated as “commercial zones.'
under the management of boards of
tontrol elected by the banks. A
bankers’ council, to act as a court of
appeals for each zone, composed of
business men and bankers, he also
proposed. A deputy United State*
comptroller would preside over each
By having all banks in the United
States contribute from 7 to 10 per ;
cent, of their deposits to a central
reserve, Mr. Fowler estimated a gold
reserve of upward of *1.260,000,000
would be created, to be held In trust
for all commercial zones, and its dis
tribution in times of need would be
controlled by a board chosen from
all the zones. Such a plan, Mr. Fow
ler told the committee, would enable
such an- organization as he outlined
to control the movement of gold to
and from the United States and en
force a discount rate for gold tran
Its chief results, he said, would b«
to make each bank independent, to
make each zone independent of an
other and completely decentralize uli
bank credit in the United States.
James B. Forgan, the Chicago ‘
banker, who was to have appeared
yesterday, is scheduled to testify
later in the week.
